Have you bumped into something with your car lately, leaving another objects' paint stuck on your vehicle? We’ll, you don’t have to look at that ugly paint spot on your car any longer. This is a trick that will remove the paint marks on cars fast and simple, and you can do this at home in your driveway.
Things You'll Need
- 2000 grit sandpaper (waterproof only)
- Polishing compound with abrasion
- Car soap
Clean your car off so you can get a good idea where the paint is that you are going to remove and what may only be dirt. Prepare a bucket of soap and water to wash it with. Give your car a quick wash and dry.
Try sanding a small spot as a test before you do a really big area. Hand sand the paint marks carefully with wet sandpaper. Sand the car until all of the paint marks disappear. Be careful not to remove your paint’s clear coat (this is the top of your car’s paint).
Polish with a polishing compound to bring back the clear coats’ original shine, because sanding will leave it dull. Use a moist sponge to rub the compound in.
Give the polished area a little time to soak in and dry.
Wax the whole car. The car should look as good as new.
Tips & Warnings
- Take your time sanding to ensure the clear coat is not removed. The time it takes will vary on the amount of paint you must buff off of the car.
- Waterproof sandpaper is a must. Do not use anything else.
- Do not use a sanding machine.
- This procedure will not fix dents or other damage that may have been done to a vehicle.
